| Merchant: NRS When you feel the need for speed and control in the toughest whitewater, turn to the Werner Odachi Carbon Paddle. It's been designed from the ground up specifically for down river and creek racing. Werner's exclusive Neutral Bent Shaft positions your hands for the best balance, comfort and control, helping reduce discomfort in your wrists and arms. With an increased blade-to-shaft offset, this blade-forward design gives a more powerful catch and a more vertical angle through the power phase. The aggressive blade dihedral decreases flutter to ensure stable, powerful forward strokes in turbulent whitewater. The blade is totally designed for the conditions: Longer (49 cm) , symmetrical for more surface area in the water in the vertical racing stroke, and with a subtle scoop for more purchase. Because you still hit rocks when you go fast, DynelA (R) edging is highly abrasion and impact resistant. Carbon shaft and advanced blade design have been optimized for low weight, maximum strength and a comfortable flex. The Odachi has been built in collaboration between Werner's engineers and some of the best racers in the world. If racing is your bag, you can't go wrong with the Odachi.
